Hurricane-Matthew-Oct-6-jpgAs Hurricane Matthew sets its sights on the US, more than 2 million people have already been urged to flee their homes, with more

evacuations likely as the deadly storm makes its way past the Bahamas.

State officials in Florida, South Carolina and Georgia cautioned residents not to hunker down at home if they live in the hurricane’s

potential path.

Not all of the millions of people in Matthew’s path have been ordered to leave, but the mandatory evacuations are the largest since

Hurricane Sandy struck the East Coast from North Carolina to New York in 2012.
